It’s been a little more than a week since New Jersey saw record-breaking warm temperatures and now the Garden State is bracing for the cold.
The National Weather Service has issued a freeze warning for parts of the state through Tuesday at 9 a.m. A winter weather advisory is in effect for Sussex County until Wednesday morning.
Most of New Jersey will see rain Tuesday afternoon and evening. But there are some areas of northern New Jersey that could see a little bit of wintry weather.
But temperatures for the rest of the week will be in the low- to mid-40s, indicating that winter is on the approach.
Some New Jersey residents who were out in Westfield Monday evening were not too happy about this.
“I’m more for the [70-degree weather.] I’m one of those people who is always cold, so I like it when it’s a little bit warmer,” said one resident.
“It had to come eventually…we’re still getting a smoothie, so it’s not too bad,” said another.
New Brunswick police have issued a Code Blue for the night. Unity Square Community Center will be open as a warming center until 7 a.m. Tuesday.
Any New Jersey resident in need of shelter or other social services is encouraged to call 211 for assistance.
